THANK YOU to everyone who purchased goods from my Etsy Shop last night and today!  

It was a wild and crazy day today! It took most the day to get to all the orders, emails and convo's. 

Hopefully I didn't miss anyone! 

If you emailed or convo'd me and I didn't respond. So sorry!

If you spoke for a Pin Bowl PLEASE head over to my ETSY SHOP and find your Custom Listing and pay the deposit. 

If Payments are not made by tomorrow morning (10/07/14), you will loose your order and I'll be letting the next person in line have that bowl(s) ... 

There were many more orders for Pin Bowls then I could fill.  Watch my blog and Instagram account for future Pin Bowl Sales...

Hello Everyone! 

I haven't blogged for a while....
I've been busy getting ready for my very last Etsy sale! 

I've decided to close Pleasant Home on Etsy and I'm having a HUGE closing my doors SALE going on now! 

I expect the fabric to fly out of the shop pretty fast.  I posted a picture of most the fabric for sale, over on my Instagram account, and there's been quite an interest...

I will be taking a limited number of custom orders for Magnetic Pin Bowls.  Please email me directly if you're interested.  They are on a first come first served basis.

Recipe for Granola

Even tho the temps are still a little high right now.  I'm thinkin I'm ready for FALL.... 

I've been doing some Fall Cleaning.... 

I've also been surfing Pinterest and making some new dinner menu's and stocking the pantry...  The husband had a request for some homemade Granola...

A friend of ours shared her recipe with me several years ago... It's the only one I've ever made, but we really like it, so I just keep makin it. 

I posted a pic of some on my Instagram feed the other day and was asked for the recipe...

So here ya are... 

5 - 6 Cups of Oats ( I use 3 cups of Old Fashioned and 3 cups of Quick) 

1 1/2 Cups Coconut 

1 Cup Chopped Nuts ( I like to buy the slivered Almonds) 

1 Cup Wheat Germ

Mix the above ingredients together and spread into 2  large baking sheets (the big cookies sheets with a lip. Or broiler pans would work too) 

In a small sauce pan, mix the following and warm up on low to medium heat. 

1/2 Cup Honey

1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

1 teaspoon Vanilla

1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon

Drizzle heated ingredients evenly over the granola mixture in the pans.  Bake at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes.  Watching closely and stir every 5 minutes with a fork. 

You can add raisins, craisins, dates, etc. 

*** The notes in the recipe said don't bake the full 15 minutes if you add fruit because the fruit will harden.  I bake the granola a full 15 minutes and then add the fruit when it comes out of the oven. 

You can also substitute ingredients... If you don't like Coconut, add more nuts.  I was thinking those All Bran Buds in the cereal isle would be good in the granola too. 

Let the granola Cool.  Place in Airtight Containers, Bags, or Jars.... 

I made three batches this weekend and put them in Food Saver bags and put them in the Freezer. I've never frozen the granola before, but it was recommended several places on the world wide web. 

Enjoy !!!
